Psychotherapy is a method of addressing life's challenges and advancing personal development in ways that can lead to behavior change, problem resolution, and the development of greater self-understanding and acceptance. Over 100 years of research have shown that psychotherapy can help alleviate or eliminate symptoms of emotional and behavioral difficulties, as well as promote greater feelings of acceptance and confidence. Many people utilize psychotherapy to address issues such as depression or anxiety, while others use it to promote health and well-being, and psychotherapy can be a significant help in overcoming and resolving life's challenges or transitions. The reasons for seeking therapy are as individual and varied as the millions of people who utilize this service each year.
Many approaches to psychotherapy exist, and every therapist conducts therapy with their own individual style. In seeking psychotherapy it's important to find a therapist that feels like a good match for you and your goals. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions you may have regarding my approach to therapy or the types of concerns I work with. As a cognitive/behavioral psychologist I generally work to help my client's move forward in addressing real world difficulties or concerns they are currently facing. I focus primarily on finding practical solutions to life's challenges by helping my clients access and develop their own skills, abilities, talents, and insights to aid them in being able to take action in life with a plan that fits their individual needs, beliefs, and life situation. I currently conduct psychotherapy with adults, adolescents, and children in both individual and family settings. I look forward to speaking with you to set up an initial consultation or to simply discuss your interest in psychotherapy.
